Ribble are sending three riders to the Gravel World Championships in Veneto on freshly painted bikes with one of the nicest paint jobs we've seen.

The Stone Collection features handpainted marble, slate and granite effects, and will be available as a custom option to customers buying Ribble's top-of-the-range Carbon Gravel SL bikes, as well as their aluminium, steel and e-bikes.

The paintwork "draws inspiration from rock formations found in the natural world, bedrock and landscapes associated with the adventurous exploration of gravel riding" say Ribble.

It is available in three effects: Marble White, Granite Grey and Slate Black. 

"With this all-new paint finish, we are proudly showcasing the design, craftmanship and true technical capabilities of our team and our newly upgraded in-house paint facility," enthuses Jamie Burrow, Head of Product at Ribble.

"Each hand painted bespoke bike is a unique work of art - no two paint finishes will ever be the same. Our CustomColour option allows our customers incredible levels of personalisation when buying their ideal and unique ride."

The Stone Collection applied to the Carbon Gravel SL will be the bike of choice at the Gravel World Championships in Veneto for the three Elite Ribble Collective riders selected to compete for Team GB.

"I've been riding my Gravel SL across the world this year at races including Unbound, Gravel Earth Series and Raiders Gravel and I'm thrilled to be representing Team GB on this lush new Stone Collection CustomColour machine at the Gravel World Championship," asys Maddy Nutt, currently 2nd GES GC, Ribble Collective.

The three Stone finishes are available across the Ribble Gravel range of carbon, aluminium, steel and e-bikes via the CustomColour option.

To highlight this exclusive new finish further, Ribble has created a special Gravel SL Marble Hero build with Shimano GRX Di2 1x11-Speed, Zipp 303 S wheels and LEVEL 5 Carbon Integrated flared handlebars at £4,499.
